today, and roughly 2% under performing economy, there's just no reason for interest rates to jump higher. the u.s., by the way, is really the only global stock market game in town. our companies are profitable. so at these levels it may not be roaring bullish. i don't think the fed is going to taper down tomorrow, and i do believe the bull market is far from over. that's my take. let's welcome kenneth heed ner. and i'm joined by george gilder. he has the book "knowledge is power." ken, what say you? >> i say that we have a number of years of growth ahead of us in the economy. it's growing at 2%. it's going to accelerate as consumer confidence rises with rising housing prices. we'll see 3, 4, 5% growth rate. >> 3, 4, 5%, those are big numbers. you had an okay housing number today but housing starts are up 29% on year. here's my inflation point. the year-to-year cpi, 1.4%. guys like me two years ago worry about inflation, money printing, i was wrong. i said that before. the best set indicator, 1.0%. without inflation, why should inflation rates have to go higher? >> they go a little bit hi
